Invited to lunch by the big boss, it’s always hard to say no, so I trooped along.
As with all set lunches you need to be a bit strategic and check out the deal and options available: 2-courses vs 3-courses, dessert, whether it includes coffee/tea and plan accordingly. The starter and mains were easy choices. But the dessert was an extra $30 which I must have vocalised as my big boss said, “you can get that too”! Sweet.
The choice between panna cotta and chocolate mousse was never really a difficult one for me, despite a colleague vouching for the panna cotta.
I eagerly finish my starter salad and crumbed sole filet and wait in anticipation for dessert. Unfortunately for my colleague they had sold out of the panna cotta. Any pity I had for him disappeared as mine was placed on front of me… Oh my mousse! Creamy and rich, the caramelised slice of lemon on top was the perfect mix if sweet and sour. It was a very happy lunch day.
